Thread: FLARE from moderator using NV

  1. #1

    FLARE from moderator using NV

    Wanting some advise please. I have the NITESITE WOLF and on one of the rifles (.22RF) I get a slight flare back from the SAK mod. I did some testing today and the flaring is coming from the lip of the mod were it screws to the barrel. How can I get rid of this, can I just spray the moderator with some matt black paint? Any other suggestions appreciated

    I thought about a sunshade so tested using some rolled up card and it did not stop the flare

    do you mean a glare from the rear of the mod or when you fire the mod (flash ? )

    if its glare back we used a inner tube/dull rubber coating on the rear of the mod to dull down the shinny area of the mod, works a treat, and as mentioned a old blac sock and a rubber band.

    Bob, I am referring to glare back from the rear lip of the mod back in to the scope.

    cheers bud

    we used a bit of inner tube and it works a treat, if you find its still a bit shiny just rub it with a bit of those green kitchen scouring pad things to take the shine off it, you can use just enough to cover the rear of the mod or the whole thing, i had some old lycra type stuff and i just stitched it together and it works on my old mod (a sl5) that a mate purchased from me and he uses it on his 223 with a photon and its fine.

    hope that helps

    Block out the bottom half of your day scope or spray the mod in matt.

    As said above, tape over the bottom third or so of the objective end of the scope. It won't affect your sight picture, but should cut out the glare.
